the higher terrain possible. that becomes all rain as we head into tomorrow morning. rain and gusty winds. now, clear out tomorrow afternoon. thursday looks okay. then we are already watching our next system. this is one that is going to work its way up the u.s. east coast. green areas indicate areas likely to see precipitation. you see it gets awfully close to us. mainly, the cape and the islands. as we head into friday afternoon. at this point, it would be cold enough that any precipitation that falls would likely fall as snow. we are going to have to watch this track very closely. drastic change in the forecast for friday. the other story is the cold weather moving in here. strong northwesterly winds will usher in a more winter-like weather over the next couple of days. with more on that, here is danielle. >> danielle: thanks, rob. yeah. we dealt with the strong winds last week. this morning and we will see them again tomorrow morning. overnight, they are picking up by 8:30 tomorrow morning. those wind guferss out of the south could get up to 50-55 miles per hour. it is going to be very windy out there for your morning commute.
12:48 pm
notice the direction of the winds will shift. they will be out of the northwest. by thursday morning. and this is what's going to help bring in some cool air as we head into the second part of the workweek. notice tomorrow morning, we will reach our high temperatures early in the day. and then from here, it is all downhill. you can see that cool air moving in by thursday morning. temperatures are in the 20's. then we also have that wind. that means it is feeling even cooler out there. feeling like the single digits at 7:00 a.m. into the teens by 10:00 a.m. then thursday, high temperatures only going to feel like they are reaching the low to mid-20's. we will have this cool air and then we are watching that storm. and for more on that, rob, back to you. >> yeah. hard to believe, danielle. going from 64 yesterday to single-digit windchills thursday morning. stays cool friday morning. waking up to temperatures in the teens. low 30's at best friday afternoon. again, we are concerned about the possibility of some snow. if that storm track stays same, it would mainly be flurries. some snow showers at best for
